I Never Called Politicians Lunatics –Obi
—Says It’s Handiwork Of Mischief Makers
Presidential Candidate of Labour Party, Mr Peter Obi, has denied making the statement where he was mischievously quoted as saying 70 percent of Nigerian politicians are Lunatics.
In a statement from his Media Obi, entitled “RE: “70% of Nigerian Politicians are Lunatics,” made available to NewsOrient, Obi said:
“The attention of Mr. Peter Obi’s Media Office has been drawn to an article being circulated, where Mr. Peter Obi was quoted to have said that “70% of Nigerian Politicians are Lunatics.”
“Let it be made clear that Obi, not known for violence of speech, did not make the statement. It is the handiwork of mischief makers, who have been trying, over the years, to quote him out of context or twist his statements in a manner to set him against the people.
